If Rubio comes off the bench to play behind some scrub, we'll get to see the bad version of him again. Hes an extremely sensitive player who needs to feel the trust of the coach and team to bring out his best. Its good he keeps getting the confidence boosts in his national team appearances though. World champion and MVP at the last world cup, unstoppable against the later champions this olympics.

Garland isn't a scrub.

It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

I dont know Garland but last season Ricky came off the bench behind D'Lo for a while and he was horrible. Its simply not the situation that brings out the great game he has. Its not a fan view, its a simple fact.

I mean Love is coming off the bench too and my understanding is that Rubio warmed up to the mentorship role with Ant as the season wore on.

Rubio was going through problems related to the pandemic. His play in FIBA is hopefully a sign he's ready to turn back the clock, but Rubio fans need to understand he's on the team to help the young players. If he can't do that he'll be sent packing.

Thats exactly what will happen. If he comes off the bench to play a few minutes he will play horrible on offense. He will always give 100% and be an elite help defender, steal guy and rebounder, he will get his assists, but he wont be able to shoot because its a mental thing with him. Without shooting and without good starters around him who can convert an open shot he created, he isnt worht the money. Fans will hate him and he will move on after this season.

As nice as it would be, nobody is counting on Rubio knocking down J's with any consistency. If he did, someone will pay him a lot more than the Cavs next year.

As funny as the Ringer was trying to be, Lauri had to agree to sign with Cleveland for the S&T to even occur.

As a positive side effect for all Rubio fanboys and -girls, our sleeping habits will certainly improve since Ricky will play in the east for the first time in his career.

Learning about the roster i feel more excited about the coming season that seems to be reasonable.

I think Ricky will have a major role showing if the Cavs collection of talent is actually worth something. Might just save Altman's job.
